All California-bound boats will visit the east coast first.

Takes about a week to go through customs + VPC, then another week to get transported to your dealer.

I thought it was getting there tomorrow on 12/9 per the MOL site. I see in the marinetraffic website the ETA. Maybe a dumb question, but is that more reliable than the MOL schedule? I hope we are lucky and clear right away. My CA tells me he has an ETA of 12/13 this is to Houston.

even though we are close to getting our cars I think this wait is the worst. By the way the MOL schedule did update to reflect the ship arrival on 12/8 at Brusnwick. 800 number and website has not yet been updated. Hopefully my CA is right and my car arrives at the dealer on 12/13

Hey everyone, first post on the forum. Super excited.

Does anyone know if a dealer allocated car has any 'preference' over custom orders?

I 'intercepted' a dealer allocated car last week, - it was 151 last week and today just changed to done with production awaiting transport to port of exit.

My dealer insists it'll be here within 4-6 weeks (last week) and even said they'd give me a loaner if it's more than 6. Im just preparing myself mentally.

I hope I can get on the Dec 17 boat.

Any "preference" ends at the end of production. Now you have to wait for transport to port, get on ship, get to destination port, vpc, then dealership. But yeah you should have it in 4-6 weeks if it's finished production.
